Operating the answering machine using the voice menu

Using the voice menu you can operate the FRITZ!Box answering machines with any telephone connected with the FRITZ!Box. For example, you can turn the answering machines on and off, listen to messages, or record your own greeting. Your own greetings may be up to one minute in length.

Note:The configuration procedure and notes on functions given in this guide refer to the latest FRITZ!OS for your FRITZ!Box.

1 Configuring a telephone to use the keypad function

The following steps are only necessary if the cordless telephone is not registered with the FRITZ!Box's base station:

Note:If you are using a telephone that is registered with the base station of your FRITZ!Box (for example FRITZ!Fon C5), you do not have to configure it to use the keypad function.

  • Configure the devices so that you can dial special characters (such as * and #) or send keypad sequences (sequences of symbols and digits, such as *121#) with them.

    Note:Many Gigaset telephones can be configured as follows: Select "Operation at a PBX" from the telephone's menu, then select "Dialing options" and enable the option "Dial * and #".
